The City of Raleigh has been rewarded with Bicycle Friendly Community status in recognition of Raleigh’s commitment to promoting bicycling as healthy, fun transportation and investing in infrastructure necessary to make our city more bicycle-friendly.
This outstanding recognition comes as a result of the Raleigh City Council following the recommendations of the new Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission last fall and approving $1.35 million in bicycle and pedestrian improvement projects. There are 22 projects throughout the city that will be completed over the next two years. They include miles of new sidewalks and on-the-street bicycle lane striping.
So hop on your bike and check out our friendly community!
